Are you inspiring, committed, motivated, and flexible in attitude, of warm personality with a calming compassionate approach?

We have fantastic opportunities for full and part-time Support Workers to play a key part in assisting the adults we support within the community and in residential settings. Our support is delivered in ways that promote and empower individuals to develop life skills that enable greater independence and personal choice.

Your approach will be person-centred with the ability to calmly manage challenging situations, demonstrate empathy with others and adapt easily to change. Your shift rota pattern will include early mornings, evenings, weekends, sleep-ins and bank holidays.

Due to the physical and vulnerable nature of the people we serve, and the need to support individuals safely, this role can be both physically and emotionally demanding. However, we consider the enormous rewards and satisfaction of supporting people to achieve their goals outweigh such demands.

Experience of autism, learning disabilities, non-verbal communication and working with challenging behaviours is desirable; however, we provide a superb, comprehensive, mandatory training programme to all staff which supports your knowledge and development of essential skills.

Alongside working in a rewarding role with committed and specialised staff teams, we offer continuous professional development (including QCF), up to 27 days’ annual leave plus bank holidays (pro-rata for part-time), an employee assistance programme, contributory pension scheme, work related travel expenses, family friendly benefits and opportunities for overtime across all our services.

Autism Hampshire is committed to Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of young people and vulnerable adults and expects all staff, supply workers and volunteers to share this commitment. DBS and Home Office checks will be required.
